Speaker | Science for Getting Unstuck

If the last few years have taught us anything, it’s how vital it is to adapt. But why is change so hard? And how can we diagnose complacency and conquer our goals? Award-winning behavioral scientist and Wharton professor KATY MILKMAN has devoted her career to understanding change. Milkman uses science, humor, and real-world stories from her groundbreaking book How to Change to show us how we can overcome our most difficult obstacles. She was named to the Thinkers50, which is often referred to as the Oscars of Management Thinkers, and features in a Masterclass on navigating change. In her talks, she offers a science-based blueprint for adapting our behavior (and the behavior of those we lead, manage and coach) to the demands of the rapidly changing world. Her research and insights are frequently covered by major media outlets such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Economist and NPR.
